Somewhat useful. However, I have found at least 15 incorrect meanings for village names within a 12 mile radius of my house. This maybe because the author has simply regurgitated the meanings given by so called historians and archeologists (usually by attributing the name of a random unknown person rather than looking at the landscape) instead of making a serious study of how anglo-saxons used language to describe places.

Anybody who includes Ireland in a book about "British Place-Names" really is nailing their jingoistic British Empire-loving anti-Irish politics to the highest mast available. Really pathetic stuff. Well done, David Mills

Ireland is in the British Isles. There's nothing wrong with the name, you uncultured swine.

There is a major problem with this book, it's title!
Ireland is not and never was in Britain. Feck off and stick to your own country!

Should therefore be named a dictionary of British and Irish placenanes .
